Thrills + Chills: Pilled

Start date: 25 Oct 2023
End date: 28 Oct 2023
Location: The Old Electric

It’s Valentine’s Day. Like all singles, housemates Sarah and Dale are having an evening in and keeping away from lovebirds everywhere. Then a familiar sound of a text message. Then another. Both of them check their phones. Something is happening out there. Pilled is a new, experimental play based on structured improvisation. Each performance is created anew by two new actors for each performance and no two performances will ever be the same. The actors receive the information of the outside events unfolding as the play occurs, in real time, and their responses are unscripted.
